Yale VSlll Chain Block

Yale VSlll Chain block available with SWL's from 250kg up to 5 tonnes. It forms part of a broader range of lifting equipment from Yale, which includes manual chain blocks, electric hoists and much more. Visit our Yale brand page to see the full selection we offer at Lifting Gear Direct. 

Yale VSIII Chain Block Features

This is classed as a medium duty manual chain hoist ideal for everyday lifting tasks. In spite of its compact design, it still manages to offer a number of modern features and a host of different lifting capacities across the full VSIII chain block range. 

The much-improved hand chain guide prevents tilting or jamming of the hand chain which in turn enables smooth chain movement. 

The side plates, gearbox & load chain sheave incorporate high quality bearings. These enable the drive pinion and load chain to run smoothly and efficiently. If you are looking for a chain block that will improve productivity and simplify the lifting tasks that you need to complete, then such features will be a big benefit. 

Easy operation due to the optimised hand forces set standards.  

Yale VSIII Manual Chain Block Resilience & Maintenance

Thee chain blocks incorporate Zinc plated brake parts, guide rollers and load chain in order to offer extra corrosion protection. The load chain is zinc plated as standard. If you are intending to use this Yale chain block in an environment where it might be particularly susceptible to corrosion, then the presence of zinc plating will definitely give you peace of mind. Of course, many of its rivals offer similar design features, so you can always check out chain blocks from brands like Kito, Tiger and Tractel if Yale’s models do not suit your needs. 

These manual chain blocks are simple to use and maintain. At Lifting Gear Direct we also offer equipment inspections to ensure that you are compliant with industry regulations. Because of the requirements involved in operating this type of equipment, it makes sense to choose a model like this which is more likely to survive and remain consistent year after year. 

Yale Chain Block Model Options

The VSIII chain block is available in 8 models with SWL from 250kg up to 5000kg. Various falls of chain are offered, with differences in specification usually due to the lifting capacity that a given unit is designed to provide. 

If you have even more specialised needs, then you might consider investing in one of Yale’s ATEX-rated manual chain block models. This includes a variant of the YaleLift 360 hoist, which is available either with or without an integrated trolley for added convenience and cost-effectiveness.
